KGF Chapter 2 shows will start as early as 6am in Surat, for the first time in the city’s history

One of the most anticipated films of this year, KGF: Chapter 2 is set to hit theaters on Thursday, April 14. Prashanth Neel director will even offer shows starting as early as 6 a.m., Bollywood Hungama reported. This is done in order to ensure that the film attends a wide release to meet the demands of the audience.

Now, the publication in its latest report said that the film’s broadcast times will start at 6am in Surat, making it the first film to do so. The publication quoted Kiritbhai T Vaghasia, who runs The Friday Cinema multiplex in the city, as saying, “I kept a show of KGF – Chapter 2 at 6.15am in my theater. It’s already 100% sold out. So now I’ve kept another show, at 6:05, and it’s almost full too.”

Vaghasia revealed that in the history of Surat, for the first time, a show will start at 6:00 a.m. Following this, other multiplexes in Surat also held early morning shows.

The publication quotes a trade expert as saying, “People in cities like Surat usually don’t prefer to go so early to watch a movie. Thus, in these centers, the first show usually takes place after 8:00 or 8:30. With KGF – Chapter 2, demand was such that all of the Day 1 shows filled up. Exhibitors were therefore forced to take this step. This shows that the Day 1 numbers of the film will be historic.”

The sequel to the film, KGF Chapter 1 was released on December 21, 2018 and cost around Rs. 250 crores at the box office. Besides Yash and Sanjay Dutt, the sequel features Raveena Tandon, Prakash Raj, Srinidhi Shetty, and Anant Nag in prominent roles.
